While the kindred spirits of rock stars and models have walked hand in hand ever since the first electric guitar was plugged in, a few artists have perfected the art of being in the right place at the right time. Slash recently slithered his way between two beauties for a very special photo op ... and perhaps the birth of a ridiculously good-looking supergroup.
We included former Guns N' Roses guitarist and current solo star Slash on our list of awesome rock dads for a very simple reason -- the website of the photo service we use for our stories is absolutely packed with pictures of him and his sons attending a variety of fantastic, kid-friendly events.
We have a new addition to our growing collection of 'Really Talented Little Kids Playing Classic Rock' videos. Earlier this month we saw a six-year-old drumming along to Van Halen's 'Hot for Teacher.' and now we have a seven-year-old girl playing Slash's guitar part on Guns N' Roses' 'Sweet Child O' Mine.'
Slash surprised fans of Anthrax at the House of Blues in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (March 27) by taking the stage to play guitar on 'T.N.T.,' the AC/DC song Anthrax chose for their new album of covers called 'Anthems.' The band turned in a pretty convincing rendition, captured on the fan video below.
Few things kill a day's productivity for us more than a new update from one of the Angry Birds games. So as rock fans, we were thrilled to get a bit of a surprise today (March 7) when we saw that the latest version of Angry Birds Space features Slash, whom creators Rovio branded an 'honorary Angry Bird' in the update's notes.
This morning (March 5), a Czech court cleared Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe of charges related to the 2010 death of a fan at a concert. Following the acquittal, many of those in the rock community, including former Guns N' Roses members Slash and Duff McKagan, took to Twitter to voice their approval and show their support. Their tweets are embedded below.
Conventional wisdom says that when it comes to relationships, opposites attract. Besides keeping things interesting, differences of opinion often lead to engaging, mind-expanding discussions.
